Monterey thanks

Just returned from MB Aquarium and want to thank all who took the time to suggest and direct to good local "cheap but good" places. We ended up having lunch at Sea Harvest- a high quality/value place, indeed, and right next to the main Aquarium parking structure-- perfect. We just couldn't face the prospect of walking through the Cannery Row gauntlet for the yummy sounding tri-tip- maybe next time. We later had a snack at Miguelino in Seaside- good and friendly but not anything to get off US 1 for. That may not be a completely fair comment since we just had snacks, and we have so many similar places in/around our SF neighborhood. FYI we finished off with ollalaberry pie at Duartes in Pescadero [ever more expensive, but fortunately still fantastic] and then u-pickem ollalaberries for home at the Phipps Fruit[ and about every thing else!] Market a mile or so further east on Pescadero Road. The next couple of weeks seem to be THE time for ollalaberries this year if you crave such. There's another u-pickem place on US1 north of Davenport, and probably others as well. Thanks again for the good suggestions.
